“Fire Prevention, Towards Progress”

March is known as the Fire Prevention Month in the Philippines, Presidential Proclamation No. 115-A. As the start of hot summer season fires in the country is also known to increase so it is better to be safe than sorry and every Filipinos should do their share with the theme “Kahandaan sa Sunog, Tungo sa Kaunlaran”.

It’s time to share some campfire tips when outdoors. Part of the fun of camping out is sitting around a campfire after a hearty meal. But even the campfire can be dangerous unless some thought is given to preventing the fire from spreading. Here are some campfire tips:

a. A campfire should always be made in a designated area that is first cleared of leaves and other debris to prevent the spread of flames.
b. Don’t build a bigger fire than you need, and never try to start a campfire with gasoline of a lighter fluid.
c. When finished with the campfire, drown the flames with water and stir the ashes.

(Note: In mountaineering making bonfires are prohibited, except for survival and emergency purposes. Camping area should be free from any form of fires.)
